We went for something different and wasn’t disappointed!

We found the seating very tight to the point of being uncomfortable!

The mains were acceptable b/c it was part of winterlicious. We would have like to try the main menu.

Ran out of some desserts which is poor planning on your part.

Fabulous night out. Ambiance made everything all the more better. Food was fantastic as well as the presentation. Cooked to perfection. The owner came around and worked alongside the employees. You’d never know she’s the owner until we inquired about the paintings, cushions and dishes. The decor really made you feel warm and welcome.

The food as usual was amazing. Went to enjoy a quiet evening out for our anniversary but had 2 large tables with extremely loud guests next to us. I had to raise my voice to speak. All in all, 5 stars.

A lovely, intimate restaurant with a good wine and liquor list. The food is good, but not outstanding. Service is very good. When the weather is nice, the window wall is left open to the flowers growing on a vine outside. Worth the visit.

I would recommend this restaurant to everybody. The food is out of this world. Whether you have tried Persian cuisine before or not you should make a reservation at this restaurant. I had the Eggplant and Tomato appetizer and the Soltani as my entree. You better come hungry but you won't leave the same. Pom Pom Martini was excellent also and not too strong.

I came across the little cute hole in the wall decorated with beautiful pink flowers. Such an original concept, very intimate. The service felt VIP since there was a hostess just tending to us. The plates and settings were traditional and pretty. The rice was cooked so perfectly. I especially liked the khashk bademjoon and zaytoon parvardeh had a fresh kick. It’s amazing that they have vegan options incorporated so effortlessly. The only thing I would stay away from is the kabob koobideh since it tasted off, which is a shame since persia is known for it. But the joojeh was marinated juicy and heavenly! The kabob barg/ kabob torsh were very good too! I didn’t have room for dessert since the portions were very generous but the tea was a must and it didn’t disappoint. I wish their tea pots were a little bigger in comparison with the tea cups they have chosen. All in all a delightful experience on the more pricy side!

We had the signature almond lamb stew and a beef stew with some decked out rice with pomegranates. Was all really tasty and the prices are fair considering the portion sizes. Would definitely go back!

What a lovely dining experience. The food was flavorful, high quality and beautifully presented. The ambience and attention to detail was exquisite. The dining experience was not at all rushed (no push to vacate the table). It was easy to maintain conversation (often a difficulty in noisy restaurants but not here). I highly recommend and will personally be returning for another dining experience.

Yes, maybe I might recommend it. I didn’t particularly like the stew I ordered. I might try kabobs if I go again. The wine was a good price and a generous serving.

One of my favourite restaurants! Took my dad here for Father’s Day and he was really impressed by the display of each dish, the taste and flavour and as soon as he tasted dessert (the pistachio roulade) he said he was coming back. Service is wonderful, decor is really cool and beautiful. I knew this would be a safe bet for Father’s Day because I always have an amazing experience here. I had th jewelled rice and beef stew and it was gorgeous and delicious! My sister had the lamb stew, my father had the fish stew and my boyfriend had the queen’s plate. Everyone loved their dish.

Lovely food, lovely decor. Could not fault the restaurant. Service was good, could’ve done with the waitress checking in a bit more but I understand that they don’t want to come off as pests as I was on my own.

I ordered a chicken and koobideh platter and was super pleased. The flat bread was lovely. Next time I’ll get a salad and some sauces to go with my platter.

Our first time.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quiet ambiance and the graciousness of the hostess. Warm and welcoming.
The food was delicious.
Wonderful meld of flavours. I particularly enjoyed the jewelled rice with chicken.
I finished off with the pistachio ice cream. Lovely, clean, fresh flavour of pistachio.
I plan to return.

We had a wonderful first dining experience. The service was excellent. The server/owner? Was welcoming and referenced the noted allergy assuring us the kitchen would be made aware which was very reassuring. The food was absolutely delicious and for a very reasonable amount. We will be back!

We visited Queen of Persia on Saturday night. Great neighbourhood find! Food was delicious. Tried a variety of cold and hot appetizers - all great. Standout was the Zeytoon-e Parvardeh. Mains were just as good, very generous portions. Standout was the Fesenjan - beautiful presentation, matched with how great it tasted! None of us had room for dessert, but to celebrate a birthday, we tried their amazing pistachio pie, which did not disappoint.
Service was excellent.
We will return.

We first went to Queen of Persia when it opened and although the food was amazing , the service was horrible. Our recent visit May 2018, the food was still amazing and the service was much much better. Quick to seat us and take our order. Granted, there were only 2-3 tables eating at the restaurant but this was the same number as the first time we visited.
